About this product
Synopsis
Design's dynamic duo: The illustrious career of Charles and Ray Eames Nothing says modernist perfection like an Eames design. Though they are best known to the general public for their furniture, the husband and wife duo of Charles and Ray Eames (1907-78 and 1912-88, respectively) were alsoforerunners in the fields of architecture, industrial design, photography, and film. This book covers all the aspects of their illustrious career, from the earliest furniture experiments and molded plywood designs to the Case Study Houses to their work for Herman Miller and films such as the seminal short, Powers of Ten. Visual impact: Nothing says modernist perfection like an Eames design The creative duo Charles Eames (1907-1978) and Ray Kaiser Eames (1912-1988) transformed the visual character of America. Though best known for their furniture, the husband and wife team were also forerunners in architecture, textile design, photography, and film. With their integration of craft and design, high and low art forms, modern materials and construction technologies, Charles and Ray defined a multifunctional modernity. This book covers all the aspects of the illustrious Eames repertoire, from the pair's earliest furniture experiments and molded plywood designs to their seminal short film Powers of Ten and their contribution to the postwar housing crisis with the revolutionary Case Study Houses.
